We report a case of 30 year old Saudi male who was admitted with status epilepticus. He then developed acute kidney injury (AKI) secondary to rhabdomyolysis which was treated with automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) with full recovery. To our knowledge, few reports have discussed the use of peritoneal dialysis in AKI.
